The group have announced that a new line of face masks will become available on their website.
The news regarding the release was shared via Twitter, where it was announced that a portion of the proceeds earned from each purchase would be going toward securing PPE for frontline workers in the United States.

The masks are made of 100% polyester material and are said to fit “most adults”. However, it should be noted that they are not required with certified N95 respirators.
The twitter post adds that “the masks can still serve as a barrier to mitigate the spread of germs, serve as a reminder for wearers to not touch their face, and help provide an alternative make that can be used when an N95 is not required”.
The masks have raised some criticism online, with users commenting on the fact FaZe Clan have not specified what portion of the proceeds will be donated and others accusing them of “trying to profit off a pandemic”. However, some have come to the group’s defence, praising them for supporting those working on the frontlines.
The masks will be made available via the official FaZe Clan website.
